    Best experience ever, Lauren fue muy diligente, muy amable, cada vez que cambiamos las cosas nos respondieron rápido y con amabilidad,

    Fue un dia maravilloso, el servicio, la comida excelente, el servicio para los novios increíble, nos pusieron a un señor que se encargaba de guárdanos las comida y de mantenernos con bebida todo el tiempo mientras hacíamos la sesión de fotos! Nos volveríamos a casar allí nuevamente!

    All I Can Say is WOW!!

    The Rusty Pelican is the ideal venue to host your wedding. I'm from South Florida, so I always knew that I wanted a wedding indoors, to avoid the rain, bugs, heat, and sweat. The ballroom at the Rusty Pelican was the best, with the huge windows showing off the Miami skyline, all while in the comfort of A/C. The view on my wedding day was absolutely stunning, and my guests have still not stopped talking about how beautiful it was. From the daytime, to sunset, to when the city lit up at nighttime, the view was incredible.
    On top of that, the food was AMAZING. Everything that was served was phenomenal, and I was blown away with the variety of food they offered our guests at the cocktail hour and reception. We added on extras four our guests, such as a cappuccino cart, gourmet donuts, Cuban sandwiches, etc. Our guests are still raving about how much food there was, and the fact that everything they tried was amazing. I am so happy I chose to have my wedding at the Rusty Pelican, there's nowhere else I would have rather gotten married!!

    The past month I had a wonderful opportunity to film an emotional and intimate, but exceptional wedding at the Rusty Pelican. And I will admit after filming weddings for a while now I thought nothing could surprise me. I was, however, gladly mistaken! Rusty Pelican blew my mind away with breathtaking waterfront views of Miami framed by spectacular floor to ceiling glass windows, modern and chic décor, tufted and elegant furniture, and extravagant chandeliers and light fixtures it was a true fairy tale setting for a lovely couple, who had the best day of their lives! I am extremely happy to add Rusty Pelican to one of my most loved venues as it is a true Florida gem and a must for your perfect day! RIMAS FILMS cannot recommend Rusty Pelican highly enough!
